Early Communication Skills With Baby Signing

Hear What Parents Have To Say...

We are newer parents to ChooChoo and have been sooooo impressed by our first daycare experience with our almost 2 year old thanks to Mia, Emi, Luke, Christy and the rest of the amazing staff. Our daughter started there 3 months ago and we are so thankful she did. We get updates and photos all day long on the Brightwheel app. The teachers are so diligent about having the kids wash their hands and stay as clean as possible. They are also so kind and warm to our little girl and clearly care about the kids. Read More...

My daughter goes to this childcare and I am deeply satisfied with their service. They keep kids engaged in different indoor and outdoor activities along with monthly field trips which help kids to learn. They share lovely pictures and videos of kids engaged in different activities throughout the day. They also have initial onboarding transition period for 2-3 days where you can stay with kid for few hour to help them get familiarize with place. Place is very neat and clean. Teachers are very helpful and truly care for the kid. Read More...

We recently moved to Chicago and we are so glad we found Choo Choo! Ms. Mia and all of the teachers are welcoming, intelligent, organized and fun. The classrooms are clean and filled with age appropriate toys, books and other activities for kids. The teachers plan and facilitate thoughtful and engaging lessons with a on focus on learning through play. Our 2 year old has already learned so much and has formed great connections with his classmates and teachers! I highly recommend Choo Choo! Read More...

ChooChoo have created something truly special, and I will be forever grateful for the unwavering love and support they've shown my daughter since the very first morning we dropped her off. I could fill several pages with examples of how responsive, compassionate, and genuinely kind the entire ChooChoo family is. Instead, the most helpful feedback I can offer any parent currently searching for the best daycare in Chicago is this: there's no one I trust more to have my daughter's best interests at heart than Mrs. Mia and her staff.

Our family absolutely loves ChooChoo! I was SO thankful to have found the summer program at ChooChoo. The consistency for the summer has been invaluable to me and my husband. The teachers are so warm and wonderful, and we love getting updates throughout the day on the app. We also love that they are given nutritious snacks and lunches, and that they get a mix of outdoor and indoor time. When we leave for the day my girls ask to go back - a testament to how much they are enjoying the program! Read More...

ChooChoo was definitely the right choice for our family!! I am 100% calm and happy knowing they are taking care of my 3 year old son. Kudos to Hoppers classroom and teachers! Compassionate, dedicated, child-oriented group of people who attend to your child’s individual needs and are willing to cooperate with families so they can set your child up for a success across all developmental areas!

My 2 year old daughter has attended ChooChoo for the past 7 months and we have had a wonderful experience. It is extremely well run: clean facility, prompt diaper changes, food provided, lots of art projects, communicative staff, host several events for parents to attend and socialize. A detailed monthly newsletter is sent out explaining weekly curriculum themes, introducing new staff, reminders about holidays etc. The staff are all very profesional. There are dedicated classrooms for each age group, but also some opportunities to interact with children of different ages which I know my daughter has enjoyed. Read More...

Our son has attended ChooChoo Chicago. He has loved going to ChooChoo and has had the most consistent care-taking experience with Mrs. Mia and Ms. I love that they take the kids outside on a regular basis. They also engage the kids in many arts and crafts projects, learning experiences and exposure to different languages. There are kids of various ages so my son enjoys teaching younger kids and learning from older kids. We've made great family friends through ChooChoo. Our son loves going to ChooChoo and runs into the house every morning - doesn't get better than that! Read More...

Our son who is 2.5 years now has been there for a bit more than a year now. We cannot be happier with the care he gets. The onboarding was progressive and very smooth to make sure our son was comfortable. The communication with parents is excellent so we feel involved and heard (e.g. Covid measures, daily pictures, etc). Kids have a lot of fun for playing and learning. It’s a multi-cultural environnement which is great too. In summary, this is a great place!! Read More...

We love ChooChoo and even more importantly both our kids love going to ChooCoo. ChooChoo is a family home daycare that is very well-organized, both from an educational/development perspective as well as from a administrative / practical perspective. The group of kids is great and ages range from 1 - 5 years old which is great because they can learn from, and take care of, each other. ChooChoo organizes a lot of activities, varying from going to the playground, art and crafts, dance classes, swim classes, and so on. We are very happy to have chosen for ChooChoo as family home daycare for our kids. Read More...
